I will start this very slowly and see if it gains traction.

This wiki thread intends to be a list of third party published OGL books compatible with D&D 5th edition.

Everyone is welcome to contribute.
I think it is nice to have a brief description of each product, but to avoid to much expansion perhaps would be best to let adventures and small rules supplements just with title and link.

Ultramodern5

The mission of U5 is to present 5th EDITION rules for use in non-fantasy settings. These include pre-modern settings, contemporary settings, and those that are far flung fantastic and futuristic. U5 presents modern and science fiction rules in a game usually reserved for fantasy. There is no established setting in U5.

Apex

Apex is a module for DEM's Ultramodern5, a plug-in rather than a full setting: a set of rules and ideas to allow any number of homebrew settings to work within it. There is a basic background involving people who gain unnatural powers, but don't let that limit you if you wish to use it as a jumping off point.

Neuropasta

NeuroSpasta is a cyberpunk/transhumanist setting using 5th Edition rules, compatible with both Ultramodern5 and Amethyst. In this book, you’ll find… NOTE: Requires either Ultramodern5 or Amethyst: Quintessence (Ultramodern5 recommended).

Amethyst: Quintessence (5E)

A new adaptation of Amethyst based on the 5th edition (5E) of the first fantasy roleplaying game, the defining RPG of the last, current, and most likely next generation.


FOOTNOTES:

* This product was designed before the release of a 5th edition SRD. It was based on the 3rd edition reference so it may contain some tweaks in language but is compatible with 5th edition rules.
TO BE RELEASED ...

Yes, please! And if you have any suggestion about formatting and organization let me know. I did it by intuition and think this may need to improve as more material gets added.

I mentioned every publisher I can recall from memory but the list of books is not complete.
I know Green Ronin and Enworld have books coming but I opted to only list books available for sale.
I probably missed some publishers, I thought I once saw something about a modern scenario with 5th edition rules but I can't find now.

Frog God Games also has adventure compilations in hardcover:

Quests of Doom 1 volume 1
Quests of Doom 1 volume 2
Quests of Doom 2
Quests of Doom 3

Kobold Press also has Book of Lairs in perfect bound book format.

Thanks for your suggestions. :)
Added them to the list but only found 3 Quests of Doom books (besides Pathfinder).

:n:
As a reminder to all, since this is a new feature on Enword: This is a wiki thread, so if anyone is interested in a comprehensive list they can add stuff directly to the first post clicking on the edit button. Still, if you not inclined to do so, an indication of missing titles on the posts is helpful too.

What about smaller/independent/self publishing? What about the DMsG?
Well, my idea of this thread is to make a list of OGL books, so no DM's Guild stuff.
The main reason is to keep focus and prevent the list from becoming too big/messy.

I think smaller/independent/self publishing are fine, assuming they are books, OGL licensed and compatible with 5th edition rules.
So, feel free to add some if you like! :)

I suggest people to group products that belong to prolific product lines, as I did with Goodman Games adventures, in order to keep concision.

I don't know how to see individual editions so everyone editing this:
:)
Nice job! It got much better! Specially the links treatment. The Nordgames supplements looks cool too.

I want to add some more stuff in time, but I'm sure there is more stuff I don't even know about and I'm also limited on time, so people, let's join forces ...

Now, I'm thinking about adding an entry for En5ider supplements (not individual issues) considering they are pdfs what is the difference between a book and a magazine after all? Can someone confirm if the En5ider supplements are OGL licensed?

And I now remember this thread...and what I wanted to add is there!

Nord games NPC guides is very useful. And Kobold Games Tomb of Beasts is huge...and also inspired and very useful.

Also looking forward to the 5E Book of the Righteous. Suppose to start shipping to backers soon. But that has also been added, even before coming out. I will see if I can think of something else.

Ok, heres a thing: Kobold press technically has 30 or so 5E products

https://koboldpress.com/kpstore/product-category/all-products/dungeons-dragons/5th-edition/

Now, some of these (or at least their content) will be part of the forthcoming Midgard Campaign Setting. In any case, do we add all 30 here?
What's the typical page count on those $2.99 PDFs?

(Thought I notice so far only print products are in the wiki post -- what's your intention there, [MENTION=6798715]ChapolimX[/MENTION]?)

Well, It was not my intention to restrict the post to physical products to be honest. The idea was to have a comprehensive list but with care to avoid becoming boring and overwhelming. A little bit vague but yes. The truth is I started this by trial and error and didn't thought through the whole thing.

Regarding Kobold Press 30 pdfs we could group them by product lines like deep magic, adventures, source books, etc... We could use bullet points, or coma separated titles to keep things a bit shorter.

Well, I'm afraid I don't have a very solid answer. Would like to hear other people opinions.

Should we restrict the list to books available at print format? This would be a objective criteria to avoid some bloat and list completeness would be actually doable.

Or we could just use common sense to judge what should be added and compile some information?

My thought there is that if we include those PDFs we should include EN5ider's too. But at that point it does start to become very unwieldy - EN5ider has 150 of them!

I think that' s fair. Added an entry for EN5ider. As the backlog is accessible by subscription, I don't think we need to list every supplement individually.

Maybe when there's a single page that has all of them, they can be noted in the Wiki as a single Entry, like--

EN5sider Collection [150 PDFs]
